Senior Spotlight: Sohyla Mesalem
1. Tell us about yourself.
I like ordering unsolved case files and trying to solve them on my own. It’s basically a murder mystery game in which I get to act as a detective and try to figure out the victims and the murder of the case.
Travelling at a young age made me the ambitious, courageous woman I am today.
I would rather walk for miles to a specific destination than arrive there faster by car.
2. What motivates you to put forth your greatest efforts?
It’s been my dad’s greatest dream to see me as a successful, victorious woman one day and that’s what makes me want to get up every morning.
3. How do you intend to use what you have learned in PVS to benefit you as you go through life?
The most valuable thing I've learned was about people, respect and our small Islamic society.
4. What advice or suggestions do you have for Freshmen, Sophomore and Juniors in high school that would help them prepare for their Senior year?
Try to stay on track and don’t postpone doing the work to the point where it’s so overwhelming and you can’t get it done. Always pay attention in classes and try not to panic about everything.
4. How has the application process been so far?
For me, it was a little bit stressful but once you get started, you’ll get it done. Don’t panic or stress. Just don’t stop until you reach a point where you’re proud of yourself.
5. What is one thing you will miss about PVS when you graduate?
I’ll miss the people, teachers, and everything. For me, although I attended only my junior and senior years in PVS, I felt like home in this small lovely society.
6. What are your future plans after graduation?
I'll try my best to succeed wherever I am. I will never stop wanting to make my parents, school, and teachers proud of me.
